It seems there’s no slowing down Devonté Hynes AKA Blood Orange at the moment, with the rapper announcing that he will be releasing a new mixtape this Friday titled Angel’s Pulse, as reported by Pitchfork. The album, which includes left-over material from Negro Swan, will be his fifth record released under the Blood Orange moniker and lines up nicely with a huge US tour supporting Tyler, The Creator.
Of the release Hynes stated:
My new record is called ‘Angel’s Pulse’ & I performed, produced, and mixed the entire thing myself. I’m calling it a mixtape. I have a habit through the years of making records that I just give to friends, or on tape to people on the street, or no one. Usually this material is made directly after the album I’ve just put out. Somewhat of an epilogue to the thing I’ve made before. This time… I decided to release it.
I put as much work and care into it as I do with the albums I’ve released, but for some reason trained myself into not releasing things the rate at which I make them. I’m older now though, and life is unpredictable and terrifying… so here you go mates.
Hope you enjoy. Catch you soon.
